The largest urban sculpture garden in the country
With Minnesota’s iconic sculpture - the Spoonbridge and Cherry - as its centerpiece, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is considered the city’s crown jewel. For good reason: this is the largest urban sculpture garden in the US, boasting 40 works of sculpture on permanent view.
The creation of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden came about in 1988, when the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board collaborated to turn the original site of 1913 Armory Gardens into the more modern urban sculpture garden of today.
The Garden features exhibits, programs, educational activities and performances. The Cowles Conservatory is also on site. Surrounded by palm trees, Frank Gehry’s Standing Glass Fish (1986) is the focus of the central house of the Cowles Conservatory.
